Using model-based techniques, and intelligent data processing, Cybernetica’s solutions bring the knowledge about metallurgical processes from theory and written documents in the research offices into the production and control room, in the form of process monitoring, process parameter estimation, operator support systems, softsensing control, and ultimately full model-predictive control.
Operation of metallurgical processes typically includes a number of challenges, including:
- Extreme temperatures
- Aggressive liquid materials
- Lining wear
- Few measurements of the core process
- Inhomogeneous raw materials
Cybernetica has experiences in the following process metallurgy areas:
- Ladle refining
- Electric arc furnaces
- Oxygen refining converters
We provide solutions for
- Training simulators
- Realtime process variable monitoring
- Soft-sensor control
- Modelbased predictive control
Cybernetica has wide experience with industrial implementations, with over a hundred applications running online in our customers process plants. These applications run at different sites for different customers in a variety of fields. For each of them, we offer and deliver maintenance of the applications, upgrades and further development when needed. We also offer different consultancy services including simulation studies, software development and process optimizations.
Research and development is an important part of Cyberneticas strategy to stay at the forefront of our field, and we take part in several research projects focusing on metalurgical processes. In theese projects we are partnering with our customers, research institutions and other technology companies.
